Vinous – 90
The 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru, matured in 50% new oak, feels rather muted on the nose at the moment, surpassed by the Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and good density, but at the moment it just feels a little voiceless and needs more personality to develop during the remainder of its barrel maturation. Maybe the weak link in their portfolio this year?
Anticipated maturity: 2021-2032
